Finally got through this one.
Had to take a second crack at it as there was plenty of "fixed wing" procedure in it which is somewhat foreign to a mere helo driver.
I tried both talking radio and pilot exam mock questions, they aren't particularly reflective of the exam but give a good pointer.
The radio handbook or talking radios guide had a good deal of the content, aside from law and questions from radio aids exam.
You do get given a morse code guide in the exam.

"you need to write the online CAA exam, for which they don't publish a syllabus (couldn't find an official one anyway, it's not included in the most recent CPL syllabus doc)."

Yes they do - Appendix 1.5a of the CATS Part 61
